My 7 year old daughter has not eaten in 3 days, she is drinking milk and water but will not eat.

My daughter has a big dinner on Wednesday night, ate breakfast and lunch on Thursday. That night she didn't eat dinner, didn't eat at all on Friday, she also had a fever when she got up. Saturday there was no fever, but still didn't eat. She has been drinking fluids like milk and water. Now today she feels warm again and still will not eat. Should I be worried or just let this little bug or whatever it is pass?

I think it is time to take her to the doctors as this has gone on to long. If she has a temperature then there is an underlying problem here. Get her checked out, better safe than sorry.

Oh... and if she'll drink... you can make her smoothies with bananas, yogurt, OJ, and frozen fruit to get her some nutrients and calories. :)

As long as she's staying hydrated and you keep an eye on the situation... I'd let it pass. If she's still not eating by the middle of the week I'd probably put a call into the doctor, at least.
